NETFLIX only managed to receive ONE nomination for its roster of shows at the 2019 Bafta TV Awards, and it surprisingly went to Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
The psychological thriller is an interactive film in the science fiction anthology series Black Mirror, and in case you wondered what the movie is nominated for – along with info on where you can watch it – keep on reading…
What is it nominated for at the 2019 TV Baftas?
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is nominated in the Single Drama category.
It is the only nomination Netlix obtained for this year's awards ceremony, which is rather surprising given the impressive number of projects rolled out by the media streaming giant in the past 12 months.
All shows by Amazon were completely snubbed, so Netflix getting a nomination for Bandersnatch is certainly better than none.
The annual occasion will commence on May 12, 2019, and can be watched on BBC One starting at 8pm.
How can I watch it?
Bandersnatch premiered on 28 December on Netflix.
The psychological thriller is currently only available to be streamed on the media-service provider.
No other platform currently owns distribution rights to feature the title on their channel in the UK.
You must have a subscription to Netflix in order to catch the film in its full length.
When was Black Mirror Bandersnatch released on Netflix?
As was hinted at by a tweet that was promptly deleted earlier in the year, the first feature-length film in the series was released Friday, December 28, 2018.
The official synopsis for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch reads: “In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back."
The show has an interactive choose-your-own-adventure format, and it's claimed five hours of footage was filmed all together, with multiple endings based on how YOU played the story.
As to when exactly Season 5 will be released… Netflix aren't giving anything away just yet.
Who's in the cast?
According to IMDB, the cast includes Asim Chaudhry as character Mohan Tucker, and Alice Lowe as Dr Haynes.
Londoner and Dunkirk leading man Fionn Whitehead appears to be taking up the main role as game programmer Stefan.
The blurb online suggests Stefan is in for a wild ride: "A young programmer makes a fantasy novel into a game. Soon, reality and virtual world are mixed and start to create confusion."
Rising British star Will Poulter will play Colin Ritman, who seems to be a programming partner of Stefan's.

Is Jerome F Davies from Black Mirror Bandersnatch real?
Jerome F. Davies does not appear to be a real author – his books, including The Lives of Jerome F. Davies, are fictional creations for the Black Mirror film.
The word Bandersnatch actually comes from Alice and Wonderland creator Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.
There also seems to be a reference to Lewis Carroll in the trailer when Stefan apparently steps through a mirror.
There was a real 1984 game called Bandersnatch, but it was never released. It was being developed by Imagine Software as a new generation of game but that folded after 18 months.
